I am still alive

I am still alive and kicking!

just haven't been blogging. been busy with life.

I have made one of the wonderful ric racs crocodiles for my friend Liz for her birthday.... i really need to sort my laptop out so I can post photos.

The froglet has started judo and ju jitsu and now the noisy one is having a go too. I haven't seen Brazilian ju jitsu before but its a real art form. The girls are very lucky to have one of the only female black belts in Victoria as their coach and her husband is also an amazing instructor, hes like a human pretzel.

My poor training partner has hurt her back and thank goodness she got an MRI which showed two small bulges in her L3-4 and L4-5 so now she knows what she has, she can figure out what she can do. We have been walking... took little Milly with us for an hour... we did about 6km

I have a big ride coming up in a few weeks time, its 65km.. that's fine, but the thing that is worrying me is the 3.2km hill climb up Arthur's seat.... if you know that road you will understand my concern.

I have made 2 quilts for a friend at work and for a cousins new baby... today I have been asked to make another 2 quilts for new babies before the end of the year.... not a hard task but I have to find a pattern, find the materials, make them and quilt them..... might be able to use a pattern I have used before for one of them but will need a new one for the cousins baby....

Lucky they close the road off to cars for a couple of hours,up the Arthur's Seat. Do you come down the same way, if so make sure you have extra good brakes.

Good luck with the ride, I'll stick to yoga. Boy are you going to be busy with those quilts.
